Senior Analyst, Los Angeles

Why did you choose Analysis Group?
Analysis Group’s HEOR, Epidemiology & Market Access practice has leading experts in epidemiology and biostatistics whom I was excited to work with and learn from. The firm’s culture is also very collaborative, and I quickly got the sense that, even as an analyst, my ideas and contributions would be valuable to my teams. I knew that Analysis Group would be an excellent place to kickstart my career.
What do you work on at Analysis Group?
I work in the HEOR practice on real-world evidence (RWE) generation studies and post-hoc clinical trial data analyses. I’ve contributed to claims database analyses, chart review studies, literature reviews, and indirect treatment comparisons in therapeutic areas such as lung cancer, renal cell carcinoma, and hemophilia A.
What got you interested in health care consulting?
As an undergraduate at UCLA, I had the opportunity to work with biostatisticians who consult on and manage quantitative analyses for physicians in various departments. This introduction to consulting drew me to Analysis Group, where HEOR consultants collaborate with clients to conduct rigorous quantitative analyses using cutting-edge epidemiological and statistical methods.
What new skills have you learned since joining Analysis Group?
I learned how to code in SAS, how to communicate results to clients, and how to balance the nuances of data with our clients’ bigger-picture objectives when conducting analyses.
What new experiences have you had at Analysis Group?
I’ve learned how to write study protocols and manuscripts, which have been invaluable new experiences as I continue to grow as a health care professional. I’ve also had the pleasure of mentoring junior analysts and leading SAS trainings for interns.
What is it like to work on a case team?
I enjoy working on Analysis Group case teams because ideas are valued no matter where they come from. It’s rewarding to learn from case managers who are deeply knowledgeable about analytical methods while at the same time mentoring junior analysts who are beginning their professional careers.
What is it like to work in your office? What is the culture there?
Working in the LA office has been a joy. My colleagues are very kind and collaborative. We have the best administrative staff (shoutout to Chayne and Cecile!), who coordinate fun team events throughout the year.
What do you do when you’re not working?
I enjoy going out to eat at any of LA’s amazing restaurants – especially those around our office in downtown LA.
